Tell me what INTP stereotypes you have heard of. This is in no way an attack on INTP's. This thread just gives awareness to the stereotypes of the INTP personality.

Here is my list of INTP stereotypes..

1.) 40 living at home in their parents basement.
2.) 40 year old virgin
3.) Socially deprived
4.) Game Addicts
5.) Atheist
6.) Geniuses
7.) Anti social
8.) Perverts
9.) Nerds
10.) Computer experts:laughing:

Here some I have heard

1. INTPs are naive
2. INTPs are all stoned
3. INTPs are (way too) serious all the time
4. INTPs all love Star something (Trek, Wars etc)

Totally untrue IMHO :wink:

There is only one INTP I have met apart from me.

Whoops, I forget another one is going to University to study Law. I don't know how he will do. If they come from poor backgrounds like me, we simply do not know how to fit in and if we do, we run out of money and can't keep up socially.

Here is my list of INTP stereotypes..

1.) 40 living at home in their parents basement. = AMAZING TYPE
2.) 40 year old virgin = PORNOGRAPHIC TYPE
3.) Socially deprived = WANDERING STAR
4.) Game Addicts = YEP!
5.) Atheist = NOPE ! PROBABLY EXISTENTIAL
6.) Geniuses = BOTTLE UP AND DON'T GO (INDUCTIVE LOGIC)
7.) Anti social = FRUSTRATED TYPE
8.) Perverts = NOPE, JUST
9.) Nerds = NOPE, DORKS OR OUTCASTS
10.) Computer experts:laughing:
Each type can stereotype the Other so the views are subjective and put together by an INTJ. Who else would be so arrogant?

The usual accusation is LAZY TOAD

It's ok though. Once we INT's realize that we don't have any social grace or ability, we concede and laugh it up. I'm indifferent to socialization now. I'm 26 though so maybe that helps. If I found this out at 19, I would of been solid. My current goal is to get a house with lots of land and conduct experiments of my creation. I will do this and it's far enough away from zoning codes etc., I will make the exterior look perfectly normal. Even have decoy furniture in the front. Inside, will be a labyrinth of madness nad laboratories.


We are also called Insular
. I am fed up with it all. Mostly the Crazies ESFJ.

Well for stereotypes they're fairly accurate, I fit an awful lot. Don't like any 'star somethings' though. Antisocial, athiest nerd however sums me up nicely. :cool:

I seem to fit quite nicely into...I'd say...slightly more than half of the stereotypes that people have listed. I'm decently smart, I try to remain as much of a recluse as is practical, I can't see myself functioning well in a romantic relationship, I like math, and I have an unmabitious streak; those things are very true. However, I have somehow managed to escape being a nerd (probably in part because I don't have the curse of sub-average looks that befalls many a nerd), and I'm actually quite emotional. I wouldn't quite describe myself as "naive", either.

I'm not INTP but it'll be interesting to see which ones. I'll leave only the logical ones.

4.) Game Addicts
6.) Geniuses
7.) Anti social
8.) Perverts
10.) Computer experts
Those, and 9 would be true if you changed it from Nerd to Geek.

4. INTPs all love Star something (Trek, Wars etc)

Space is where it's at. As an ENTP I've always wondered why INTPs limit themselves to stars :D They should be looking at all of space. Not just the pretty lights. :tongue:
